to pave the way as my “first pie” from art of the pie, i started with this lovely blueberry pie, complete with her crumble topping. just between you and me: i secretly lacked the courage to begin with a double-crust pie…well it’s no secret now…
i couldn’t have picked a better day to bake this blueberry pie;
an unusually warm and balmy sunday(in january)! her butter crust recipe is delicious! i mean i enjoyed the taste of this crust as much, if not more, than the filling itself.
the filling was very easy to prepare.
i added orange zest to mine, and this paired with the flavor of the plump, warm blueberries, was, trust me, a match made in heaven!i’ve never actually used a whole nutmeg, gosh(!) did I feel like a real baker while grating it over my frozen blueberries.-the smell- believe me…nothing compares to the fresh aroma of nutmeg.
i took my “final” pictures before it was fully set up. the reason being that little brother showed up a bit early for his promised slice(s). it’s such a pleasant dessert; one that i feel you should invite someone over to enjoy with you…as you, of course, sit on the front steps of your house – watching the summer sunlight fad.
but wait, it’s still january.
